Research Group Seeks Insights on Ocean Supply Chain

The global container shipping industry is undergoing unprecedented upheaval, with industry restructuring and consolidation, supply and demand imbalances and convergence of e-commerce and transport logistics, says the Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network. The group is seeking insights on emerging trends through its survey, Competitive Gain in the Ocean Supply Chain: Innovation That's Driving Maritime Operational Transformation.

The entire ocean supply chain - including vessel owners, shippers, carriers, terminal operators, port authorities, post-terminal transport and consignees - has a major stake in improving the business and operational performance of sea transport, BPI Network says. Improved process efficiencies, better asset utilization, greater cross-industry collaboration and smarter use of new technologies are all critical to addressing the estimated $17bn of waste in port and carrier business processes alone.

This 21-question survey seeks to gather input from key members of the supply chain ecosystem to explore perceptions, priorities and pitfalls in the adoption of new technologies, information sharing and collaborative processes to drive new efficiencies, performance improvement, accountability and visibility across the supply chain. By participating you will receive a complimentary report and also have a chance of winning $100.
